Open Water Diver Course

Join our Open Water Diver course and become a qualified diver. The training is tailored for absolute beginners that want to become truly comfortable in the water. It includes some theory and needless to say – in-water practise sessions. Our maximum group size is 4 divers since we want to ensure that everyone has the time they need to adapt to this new environment. We also want to make sure the instructor has enough time to tailor the training to individual needs and finds the time to include fun and adventure as well as the skills and training.


The following schedule is an example of how the course is usually split over 3-4 days. Individual changes are usually no problem, simply drop us a line and we can talk about an individual timetable. Please keep in mind that if you are constrained for time, the earlier you contact us the better. We are happy to help in any way we can, but in high season we have to follow a “first come first served” policy.

Diving is obviously an underwater sport, but don´t worry if you are not the best swimmer. As long as you can swim about 200m (no time limit) and float or tread water for 10min, you are good to start the course.

At the end of the course successful students receive a certification which is recognised worldwide, and allows you to dive (with a qualified buddy) up to a depth of 18m.
